What does a Hollywood agent do? How do you get an agent? Do you need an agent if you are a writer with a script or movie idea that you want to pitch? These questions and more are answered in The Real, Low Down, Dirty Truth About Hollywood Agenting,by Rima Greer. A real-life Hollywood agent, Greer pulls back the curtain and takes you on an entertaining and informative journey through the day-to-day workings of Hollywood - from the viewpoint of an agent working in the industry.

Greer explains what a Hollywood agent does, how you get one, and their role in the machinations that make Hollywood tick. She also explains how Hollywood works, and more important, at least for a screenwriter, how scripts are sold.

The book is organized into three main parts. This insightful book is rounded out with a handy collection of resources that includes a list of must see movies and a list of must read books, as well as a list of Hollywood Terms and Their True Meaning and a glossary.

The Real, Low Down, Dirty Truth About Hollywood Agenting is essential reading for anyone interesting in selling a script to 'Hollywood', in becoming an agent, or who simply wants to learn more about the inner workings of Hollywood.
